Butler-in-A-Box
The first human interactive machine in the world. It could see, hear, think, speak, had a personality definable by its owner, was quadlingual, could understand up to four languages simultaneously, and speak any language on earth in 15 seconds. Best of all it just plugged into the wall of a normal house. It operated in four methods of operation, time, touch, situation and voice. It knew day of the week, month of the year, seasons, holidays and even if-then conditions. For example: turn the lights off at 10:00 p.m. but not if we are having a party. It knew that if it was raining not to water the lawn. And of course, you could talk to it by voice.
